A prominent YouTuber has branded Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) “the biggest troll in internet history” and called for “every celebrity actor, athlete, and influencer” to burn their ‘Nazi’ Apes.
Bored Ape Yacht Club racism allegations are the talk of Twitter once again. This time, the claims come from a recent viral YouTube video titled “Bored Ape Nazi Club”. The video from the YouTuber Philion offers a rundown of different pieces of “evidence” previously published by BAYC antagonist Ryder Ripps.
Earlier this year, Ryder Ripps took to Twitter with what he argues is substantial evidence that the Bored Ape Yacht Club is filled with racist dog whistles, white supremacist signifiers, and esoteric racism. Ripps even went as far as to publish his theory on the domain, GordonGoner.com.
Of course, Gordon Goner is the alias of one of the BAYC co-founders. To that end, Ripps stated that he chose the domain, “so when people search the co-founders’ name this info comes up.”
What to make of the Bored Ape Yacht Club racism claims?
So what can we say about the racism claims against the Bored Ape Yacht Club? Is it a valid conclusion formed from ample evidence? Or is it all a giant conspiracy from someone with a grudge against Yuga Labs?
Judging by reactions on Twitter, there are sizeable numbers of people in both camps and this is during Apefest in NYC that's taking place now.
Of course each side has its own incentive, if you belonged to a club where your $5000 turned into $500,000 or 5,000,000 you might worship it and not even realize it. Maybe some of the Apes are into the "We are Smarter" click, and deep inside are trolls and that's not unique. The things we have seen in this NFT space, it is some next level of scams, fraud, and the best of our human race.
